Love Is In The Air

Once Christmas' gone next thing you know it's count down to New Year's and then chocolates for Valentine's Day!! Sweetest and most lovely time of year (at least some say).

So I thought I'd share with you a simple Valentines's Day card I recently made. The colors are so traditional for the occasion yet it has some softness to it that I just love.

To create it I first stamped a background using versa mark. After that I created the simple center. I cut out two pieces of cardstock (a good size to layer) then I punched a border on one and distressed it quite a bit using my rose bud ink. Then I stamped the sentiment and traced the swirl and "I" with my platinum stickles. Then I stamped the lips and finished off with a couple of heart brads. Isn't that super simple?!?

And here it is. Have I mentioned how much I love these colors :)

Here's a close up of the lips. I bought this stamp a while ago and thought it so cute. I stamped it with rose bud by Memento and then used my liquid glass and it looks as if it did have lip gloss.

Well that's all for now. I'll be back early next week (my husbands' computer isn't available). So by then I'll have my simple Valentine's Day treats, lots of cards (I think from now on I'm going to share more than one per post) and remember that I have some Great News to share with you all, news you don't want to miss because to celebrate I'll have a Giveaway here at my blog!!!! Stay tuned and spread the word ;)
